Ah Boys To Men actor's social media accounts defaced for 'dissing the legion'

SINGAPORE - Ah Boys To Men actor Ridhwan Azman found his social media accounts defaced by hacker group Anonymous, in retaliation for 'dissing the legion' through several postings on Twitter.

The 20-year-old, who previously stirred controversy after admitting to slapping his then girlfriend, had tweeted about how he felt #AnonymousSG was a 'joke' and 'stupid'.

Telling his followers to trend the hashtag #AnonymousSGIsAJoke, he also made mocking comments such as, "Expect you to make my ORD date faster can?", in reference to the hacker's threat about attacking government websites.

Around five hours after his last tweet on Nov 5, tweets claiming to be from hacker group Anonymous were posted through Ridhwan's account @RidhwanAzman. These include:

"So you wanna talk s**t about anonymous? Have a taste of what's to come," and "He has been dissing the anons for far too long.. Now the lulz shall be called upon him."

The Twitter profile's description was also altered to: "So sorry Ridhwan. Finally you got ALL the attention that you've wanted - Youtube? h4xed Instagram? h4xed Facebook? h4xed Twitter? h4xed Emails? h4xed".

A video was also uploaded through ​Ridhwan's YouTube channel as a warning. The caption said: "​Claiming that we are a joke, in all attempts to trend such is now nothing but inactive accounts. What you thought was a joke is now real."

The group also claimed that they will 'certainly retaliate' should anyone intend to cause them harm.

Ridhwan Azman later posted through a second Twitter account @RidhwanAzman_ confirming that his social media accounts had been hacked.

Tweeting that 'he deserved this', he also wrote: "I thought #AnonymousSG was not real, now I know it's real. I learnt my mistakes, so now I hope I could get back my accounts, because I need them."
